Every year I enjoy making Christmas ornaments using sea glass. These lovely ornaments have been very popular and have been best sellers for a few years now.
I have filled these ornaments with sea glass handpicked by me from the shores of Fort Bragg, California and some also have a bit of sand from my favorite Caribbean Island, Anguilla. Along with the decorative ribbons they include artistic ornament hangers. They are offered in beautiful gift boxes, a perfect Christmas present ready to give!
As they are very fragile I do not offer them in my Etsy shop but do offer them in two artisan shops in Maryland, EL & Company in Pasadena and Side Street Framers & Gift Gallery in Severna Park.
These earrings are currently available in my Etsy shop!
These earrings have been created with rare pastel colors of jewelry quality sea glass with sterling silver findings. The sea horse, star fish and dragonfly jewelry charms are perfect for summertime! These would be a perfect gift for you or someone special!
If you’re visiting this page you’ll see that it’s been quite some time (years) since I’ve posted anything new. I am still VERY interested and VERY involved with my sea glass! I keep an active Facebook page, Instagram account, Twitter account, Pinterest page and Etsy shop! I hope that you’ll continue to follow me via the links below:
I am thrilled to be offering beautiful and original hand painted sea glass jewelry in my Etsy shop and at my craft fairs! The pendants are painted by my childhood friend, Kate Cocoros, also known at Painter Kate.
Kate is a very talented artist and has a wonderful and whimsical style that perfectly compliments my jewelry style.
Kate paints these lovely pendants on frosted white jewelry quality California sea glass with acrylic paints and the surface is sealed. I then wire wrap bails and add decorate beading and necklaces.
Below are just some of the fabulous designs that are available!
It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted on this blog. Even with me focusing more on my Sea Glass Visions Facebook page and Etsy shop and creating jewelry there still doesn’t seem to be enough time. A lot has been going on.
This past winter I took classes in silver smithing with Jen Soderberg Straub at Mad Tom Studios in East Dorset, Vermont. I was able to create three pieces during these classes, the final one with a piece of sea glass. I hope to take more classes this coming winter. Right now due to lack of space at my home studio (family room) I don’t plan to offer custom sterling designs, but I hope to be able to someday!
Since May of this year I have started selling in a new consignment shop, Side Street Framers & Art Gallery in Pasadena, Maryland. I’m particularly excited about this as I am selling my beautiful jewelry quality sea glass on sterling silver as “Sea Glass Visions by Cathy Kelly”.
“CFO” – Here is a general definition of a CFO or Chief Financial Operator, another hat I wear – the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) provides both operational and programmatic support to the organization. The CFO supervises the finance unit and is the chief financial spokesperson for the organization. The CFO assists on all strategic and tactical matters as they relate to budget management, cost benefit analysis, forecasting needs and the securing of new funding.
When my hubby said to me last month it was time to get all my tax records together I froze. I am by nature extremely organized but still dreaded this. And worse was I knew it was coming, and I knew it was coming for a long time. I had all my receipts in one place and had even kept records in my ledger book, but there was a whole lot to gather up from credit card records and online in my email receipts.
BTW – Here is a picture of some beautiful English Multi’s sea glass, just because…
